Constraining the timing of soil formation in linear dunes: A case study from the Strzelecki and Tirari Deserts, central Australia part of Vignettes:Vignette Collection
Desert dune formation can be episodic. The intensity of aeolian activity varies in response to environmental conditions, including concentrated reworking events and periods of prolonged partial activity. Buried ...

Regional trends in desert dune morphology and orientation: Examples from the Australian deserts part of Vignettes:Vignette Collection
Dunes are the major landforms within the desert regions of the world, owing largely to the dominance of wind over water as a geomorphic agent in the arid zone. Linear dunes, which form parallel to the resultant ...

Linear dune formation: Longitudinal elongation or local wind rifting? An example from the Strzelecki Desert, central Australia part of Vignettes:Vignette Collection
The Australian desert dunefields are dominated by linear dunes, which form a large anti-clockwise whorl across more than one third of the continent (Wasson et al., 1988). Despite being so extensive, the mechanisms ...
